killed. live report from realm straight ahead. steve? >> thank you, juliet. president obama honoring our nation's vietnam vets with an apology? >> when the honorable service of the many should have been praised, came home and sometimes were denigrated and you should have been celebrated. >> so is that the right thing to say on memorial day? what could he have meant about that? charles krauthammer will weigh in on it. >> talk about the right thing. i have a good story for you. barney frank is back with a very bad joke. >> give you one of these and i think you now have a hoodie you can wear and no one will shoot at you so i think you'll feel -- i hope, pretty protected by that. >> barney! >> oh, boy. the fallout from those comments -- >> make you laugh? >> not yet. maybe in the animation, i'll giggle.
3:01am
all that and more coming up on "fox & friends." juliet is here now. >> how much does air time does juliet need? >> sorry. >> on the cold open. >> huddy our buddy is with us on this tuesday that feels like a monday, the day after memorial day and you were busy over the holiday weekend. >> i was! what were you people doing? >> celebrating as many were. honoring our nation. >> right. i was -- i was trying to win a soccer game. in pennsylvania while my family was trying to win soccer games. we played nine of them. we won one, i think. >> out there complaining about the elements and how you just -- >> you were lying. i love the heat! throw away, i'm not complaining. >> we hope you had a nice time over the long weekend. hope you went to some barbecues. i had so much potato salad, if you cut me right here,
3:02am
mayonnaise would come out. >> is this too personal? german or traditional? >> traditional. yeah. in fact, my wife just made the new paula deen recipe of traditional, it was very good. >> she deep fried it? >> just dropped it in oil! now with a crust. eat up, kids and then break out together. anyway -- >> i said sugar! >> thank you very much, paula. >> we love her. >> hope you had a great weekend and monday as well. now it's time to get down to business. >> president obama and mitt romney commemorating memorial day, each trying to lay claim to a constituency that's emerged as a battleground in the presidential campaign. kelly wright is live in washington and i think we can all kind of guess who that constituency is. >> good morning, juliet. hope you're doing well. steve and brian, welcome back. president obama and former governor mitt romney are two men locked in a race to win the white house, as you know, two very different men with very different views of what america needs in moving forward as a great nation. on memorial day, both men shared their views on america's
3:03am
military and the sacrifices men and women make in defending the nation. romney broadening his comments discussing global threats to american security saying he has the better choice for america's military. >> we have two courses we could follow, one is to follow in the pathway of europe, to shrink our military smaller and smaller to pay for our social needs. the other is to commit to preserve america as the strongest military in the world second to none with no comparable power anywhere in the world. we choose that course. >> let's resolve that in our democracy, we can debate and disagree even in a time of war but let us never use patriotism as a political sword. patriots can support a war. patriots can oppose a war and whatever our view, let us always stand united in support of our troops who we placed in harm's way. >> governor romney and the
3:04am
president are competing for the military vote. both acknowledging the 50th anniversary of the vietnam war. romney with senator john mccain, a p.o.w. and war hero vietnam at his side and president obama paying tribute at the vietnam war memorial. >> often blamed for a war that you didn't start when you should have been commended for serving your country with valor. came home and sometimes were denigrated when you should have been celebrated. it was a national shame. a disgrace that should never have happened. that's why here today, we'll resolve that it will not happen again. >> the president also said, told troops, that is, that americans must strive to be worthy of their service. the latest gallup poll shows u.s. veterans support governor
3:05am
romney over president obama. those veterans are mostly older men and make up 13% of the population. nonvets give the president a four percentage point edge. the campaign has started again. back to you guys. >> it is indeed. thank you very much. >> thanks. >> you listen to the president of the united states there, you know, he was at arlington at the tomb of the unknowns and then later at the vietnam war memorial as well. it's interesting, though, when he was talking about how, you know, when the men and women came back from vietnam, you know, the treatment, thank god, charles krauthammer listened to what he said and interestingly enough, said that it essentially was a shot at the president's own political base. the left. listen. >> it helps to explain the huge gap between the republicans whether it's a romney or a mccain in getting support from the veterans. it isn't only demographics. it's history. and the fact is that in the vietnam era, the democrats were the anti-war party and we heard
3:06am
obama today essentially add doing penance for a country that spat on soldiers that returned from the vietnam war and what he didn't say is that in large part that was the work of the american left. it wasn't the work of the american right who supported the war. so in some way, he's trying to undo this legacy of 50 years. but that's why for the 50 years, democrats were always seen as the weak and anti-war party. weak on national defense. but it isn't only that. it isn't only history. it continues. >> yeah, those remarks were calculated. obviously, president obama has received lauding for his handling of foreign policy as we were talking about during the commercial break. >> here's my point. charles krauthammer comes up with a great point. the most important thing that i got out of the president's speech is the vietnam veterans that got no respect at all, people who fall valiantly of finally getting the respect that you deserve. if you talk to the average
3:07am
vietnam veteran, all they care about is make sure this generation of war fighters don't have to deal with what they deal with. even if charles krauthammer isn't 100% right, the end verdict is vietnam veterans, people are being forced hopefully in social studies classes as well to re-examine what they did. >> was krauthammer saying that he was politicizing it so it was a negative thing to stay. >> he said when the people came back from vietnam, they were spat upon and not treated properly and he was talking about how at that time, the party that was anti-war was the political left. which is, of course, the president's own party. it was good that the president of the united states referred to the men and women who served this nation as heroes despite what that nitwit said on msnbc. he since walked that back and apologized. >> let's talk about the long primary battle. even though you know that mitt romney has won the nomination, it doesn't become official until later on today all because of texas. >> that's right. right now, romney is between 79 and 107 votes short of the magic
3:08am
number. texas has 155 convention delegates. it's interesting, if he doesn't win texas and clinches nomination with texas he would do what john mccain did four years ago but there are some texas republicans who say, you know, he hasn't really shown up down here in texas and there's a good possibility that he might not get enough delegates tomorrow -- tonight into tomorrow, he might have to wait until next tuesday which is california and new jersey. >> he does have the support of donald trump who will be having a fundraiser for him in las vegas. that's raising all sorts of controversy in and of itself. >> we look at the gallup poll right now, dead heat of 46-46 and we also know, too, that when it comes to veterans by a wide margin as kelly, i think, alluded to, mitt romney has more support. >> right. 58-34. when you mentioned donald trump, i wanted to point out mr. kilmeade wearing a donald trump tie right now. >> i had no idea that you were
3:09am
going to bring that up. >> they are quite the insignia here. it is quite beautiful. >> you can get this only if you know where to find a store named macy's. you need a pass. >> i think it's -- they're sold at fine retailers across the country. not just macy's. >> you gentlemen both look very, very nice today. >> i have a number of trump ties as well. >> all right. you just -- have to wear them on the air, in other words. >> all right. >> i'll let them discuss fashion and we'll talk about some serious stuff including some headlines today. fox news alert. deadly quake striking italy overnight killing at least nine people. the 5.8 magnitude quake struck the city of modina. courtney walsh is in rome, italy and joins us with the very latest. what can you tell us? >> it happened after 9:00 this morning here and it was basically followed a week ago, there was another on may 20th, a little over a week, there was another 5.8 tremor that killed seven and people were expecting after tremors.
3:10am
this hit the city, as you can see, there are pictures of the tent city and one of our colleagues is going on the air and you can hear people screaming and people running out in a panic. unfortunately, the number may rise. we were told by the mayor of a town right outside of here that there are more people stuck under the rubble. there are a lot of like industrial warehouses in this area and people have just slowly gone back to work. on may 20th, there was another large quake, about the same magnitude and people were sort of recovering from that and this happened. and it was quite unusual according italian geologists and it was unusual because the geologists say usually after a quake, there are after tremors but not of this magnitude. >> all right, excuse me, thank you for that report. we'll keep on following that story and bring you up to date once we get more developments. we're learning a u.s.-led nato coalition has killed al-qaida's second highest ranking leader in afghanistan.
3:11am
he was hiding out in eastern kunar province when the air strike hit killing him and another al-qaida militant. he was known for organizing attacks against forces by supplying weapons from surrounding countries. bizarre stand-off in texas. pay attention to this, steve doocy, coming to a dramatic end on the campus of southern methodist university, s.m.u. happened overnight. a man was holed up in the cab of this crane for nearly 15 hours before he climbed out, he fell 150 feet to the ground. it was believed he died from the fall. police are not confirming anything at this time. we know the crane was being used to construct a new residence hall on campus and that the man threatened to shoot somebody, anybody who came near him. word is he climbed up there in an attempt to evade police after an early morning carjacking, the web site saying all building will be open today. wasn't that right by your daughter -- >> my daughter goes to school
3:12am
there but it's summer so she's at home. >> thank goodness. >> yeah. one man isn't wild about what's going on at a california zoo. joey says he has a problem with the 10 commandments posted at the oakland zoo and he wants them removed. the stone monument sits on a bluff on zoo property owned by the city. he sent letters to the mayor, city councillors and state lawmakers demanding they take down the commandments. so far, he hasn't received a response. we'll keep you updated that one. these stories never seem to die. >> there are a number of them. >> right. and there's 10 commandments, we know that. >> so far. although wasn't it in that movie, he started out with 15? and then dropped five. >> that documentary. >> the 15 commandments. >> mel brooks. that was fantastic. >> i don't know if that actually happened that way. i don't know. >> straight ahead, did the obama administration give an all access pass to the top secret bin laden raid in the name of movie making? a former u.s. navy seal is fired up and has some advice for the
3:13am
president next. >> and a real life heartbreak hotel. check in married. check out single. huh? divorce hotels coming to the united states. we're not kidding. >> hold on before you judge. >> ok. from around the world... ...with the best math scores. ...the united states would be on that list. in 25th place. let's raise academic standards across the nation. let's get back to the head of the class. let's solve this.

>> the white house gave classified information on the bin laden raid to hollywood filmmakers. that's what the documentary leaked late last week revealed thanks to judicial watch. according to reports, the administration collaborated with producers for an upcoming film about the raid. they still insist that nothing top secret was revealed. >> yeah, noggin appropriate was shared with them.
3:17am
jake, you know, we get inquiries every day from the entertainment industry and we get inquiries from people writing articles, from people writing books, people doing television shows. and the process that we've established is that, you know, we will work with those individuals, we'll try to make sure that we give them accurate information so that historic record is protected. but, you know, we do not share anything that is inappropriate with anybody. >> we're joined now by a former navy seal 6 team member himself and author of a brand new book "seal team 6 outcast." howard, welcome. what's your reaction to that revelation? >> good morning, guys. good to be back. it's like i said, i think fox sometimes gets a bad break -- or, you know, bad rap about being critical of the president. in the past, i've been very complimentary of the president and his handling of the abatabad
3:18am
raid in particular. i'll say this, if the president is going to continue to wrap himself in this nice warm seal blanket and stand on the shoulders of the seal team guys that did the op, he needs to protect them better. if what representative king is saying is true, if these allegations are true, then this is a violation. there's nothing wrong with talking about seal team 6. there's nothing wrong with being appreciative of seal team 6. but if you're going to give something up like techniques, tactics, procedures, that's an operational security violation and, you know, and let me say something else, brian, if the president is going to keep cashing in his seal team blue chips. then he needs to back the guys when they need his backing, let me bring up one point -- three seals were court-martialed for giving a known terrorist who had killed americans a bloody lip. are you kidding me? this guy has killed four americans, hugged their bodies from a bridge. he gets a boo-boo on his lip and he's allowed to come back and
3:19am
lawyer up although i can't imagine what type of lawyer would take this case, lawyer up and then he's allowed to court-martial three of our best so, you know, if this president is going to keep doing this and listen, like i said, i think the president did a great job handling the abatabad raid but he has to take care of the guys better on a lot of fronts. >> i know you were awarded the silver star your operations in mogadishu and i know you have a book out, tell me about it. >> unlike my first book that was memoirs, this book takes a look at modern day power vacuums that exist in al-qaida and some of our so-called allies not the least of which is pakistan. so i get -- i get to like point the fingers at people who are our friends because we give them money. >> right. so it's all out there in the book and you're able to do it in a fictional way but bring a lot of real world -- your real world
3:20am
experience to it. the name of the book is "seal team 6 outcast." thanks so much for joining us this morning, howard. good luck with it. >> you bet. have a good day. >> straight ahead, barney frank is back with a very bad joke. >> when you get an honorary degree, they give you one of these and you now have a hoodie that you can wear and no one will shoot at you. i think you'll feel pretty protected by that. >> fantastic. fallout from those comments straight ahead. remember when oprah was the queen of daytime talk? the secret behind her awesome ratings were revealed. guess what? it's not oprah. we'll explain. ♪

>> some quick headlines for you on this tuesday morning. jurors in the john edwards corruption trial will begin their seventh day of deliberations today. the disgraced democrat is accused of using political donations to help hide his affair with rielle hunter during his 2008 presidential run. with no verdict so far, many are starting to believe this trial could end in a deadlock. and it looks like oprah's time slot may have had more to do with her show's high ratings than she did. a new report reveals dr. oz and ellen are attracting many more viewers now they've taken oprah's old time slot in many tv markets. there you go. juliet, over to you and the doctor. >> this is a frightening new health report we wanted to bring to you. just came out. according to the world health organization, nearly 107,000
3:25am
organ transplants were performed in 2010 and it's estimated that 10% of those performed using black market organs and a lot creepier than it sounds, believe me. joining us right now to weigh in on this growing problem is fox news medical a teamer dr. david sumadi. good to see you, sir. >> good to see you. >> all right. so a black market organ like, for instance, most common is kidney but liver, eyes, for instance, exactly what is that? >> well, you know, it's all about the demand and supply. now, we know diabetes is on the rise in the country so more and more people really need to get these kidneys. because of the limited sources, a lot of people are going to countries such as india, china, philippines to get these organs. what has happened is because of poverty, a lot of people are selling their organs for maybe $2,000 to $3,000 and then there's a black market where these gang dealers are taking the organs, selling them for hundreds of thousands of dollars. unfortunately, there are some americans that are also going there to get this kind of
3:26am
kidneys outside the whole transplant system. >> it's kind of like they're actual tourist organ places, right? >> they have created these resorts, they call them transplant tourism where you go in and, you know, basically you just pay without the kind of system that we have over here and you get the organ. now, it's very -- >> faster than you would in the united states? >> exactly right. here what we have is a great system because selling somebody's organ is illegal. you got to wait your turn. it doesn't matter how much money you have, what your status is. >> good example, dick cheney has been waiting for a while. >> he waited for a year, year and a half to get his organ so it's a very fair system and they also have to look at every organ to make sure it's a right match. it's absolutely goes with your system and then they do it. we don't know what we're getting over there. and the rate of complications are very high and also, the world health organization is telling everyone that even the people that are selling their organs, they have 86% deterioration of their health. there's depression and issues after wards. this is a big concern and we want to make sure that people
3:27am
are well aware of this and make sure what they're getting themselves into. >> my dad got a heart transplant six months ago. he got his heart pretty fast because he was deteriorating so quickly. that's how it works here in the united states. >> absolutely. >> the worst ones, the worst situations get the organs first. >> yes. they look at all of them. but there's no such system over there and most of the poor countries this has become a huge business and a lot of people, unfortunately, taking advantage of other people's misfortune and as a result, they have really bad complications. be careful. >> good information. thanks, doc. always good to see you. >> all righty, if you're just waking up, there was a deadly earthquake in italy overnight. we'll have the very latest with a live report from rome next hour. and switching gears a bit. real life heartbreak hotel? check in married. you check out single. could be coming to a tv near you. divorce hotels. wait until you hear the details straight ahead. graduation, huh ?

>> lot of commencement addresses over the weekend. over the last few weekends. >> that's right. i saw one at boston college last week.
3:32am
>> how was that, by the way? >> it was very nice. thank you very much. bob woodruff from abc was the commencement speaker. tell you what, at umass dartmouth, though, they had barney frank as the commencement speaker over the weekend and it's interesting, one of his asides, a little ad lib is getting a lot of reaction from people. hubert jones, a long time african-american activist was honored with a degree there when barney said this about him. >> when you get an honorary degree, they give you one of these and i think now you'll have a hoodie you can wear and no one will shoot at you. so i think you'll feel, i hope, pretty protected by that. >> there you go. so barney frank saying something he clearly you would think wants back. instead when asked, he said i shamelessly recycled the joke that he used prior to this. he's used that wonderful nugget of wisdom before. >> maybe a party but college campuses don't take to that kind
3:33am

3:34am

italian drones. the sale would make italy the only foreign country other than the u.k. to fire u.s. drones along with missiles and laser guided bombs. word is they plan on using the droenz in afghanistan. you know, i'm half italian and i'm telling you right now, we should not give them these drones. >> why? >> what have they done to demand drones? why do they need help firing missiles on their drones? >> if they're part of the coalition, they can help us kill some bad guys. >> we can do it. we have the joy sticks. >> you don't trust your own people with drones. >> who's talking? >> you're all italian. >> andrew napolitano is here as well. >> andrew napolitano. we're not talking about drones on this one, though, we're talking about the internet. and the united nations potentially getting involved in sort of overseeing the internet? >> you know, this sounds crazy and it is but this week, the house of representatives of the united states of america in washington, d.c. is going to debate whether or not to allow the united nations or some group
3:46am
in the united nations to regulate the internet in the united states. >> including who has the right to turn it off. >> correct. >> including what can be taken down because it's found offensive. china is pushing for this. russia is pushing for this because the russian government does it. why should the house of representatives even consider this, it is so obviously violative of our first amendment freedoms here in this country. >> currently, the internet is regulate by nobody. >> correct. if you harm somebody as a result of what you say, the person can sue you but the government doesn't stop you from saying it. president obama has claimed in an emergency, he can shut down the internet. i only know of one instance in which a government shut down the internet in recent times and that's the city of san francisco when the occupy wall street crazies were in the subway and in the bay area rapid transit. >> or during the arab spring, there have been a number of countries that tried to shut down twitter because people
3:47am
would wind up organizing a flash mob at the square, 15 minutes, boom. 50,000 people. >> look, the internet is just speech. and the beauty of it is it's utterly unregulated. you can say what you want and you don't have to worry about the government and you don't have to worry about anybody stopping you. >> alternatively, though, you do have these wannabe terrorist who's are going on and they're looking on the internet and they're getting information from the internet on how to build bombs and carry out certain attacks so there is -- you can understand why people would want some sort of regulation, you understand why people want, you know, the pedophiles to be somehow regulated or -- >> not too long ago, somebody was prosecuted for reading a book about how to make a bomb. they got the book from a library owned by the government so how can the same government that owns a library that has this book going to prosecute people for reading it? you don't prosecute people for speech or for reading. you prosecute them when they actively commit a crime. that's the difference. that's why the internet should
3:48am
stay free and that's why the house of representatives shouldn't even be considering this! >> i get that. >> you think anything is going to happen with this? >> i think it will fail. the majority on both sides is against it. >> but every time the united nations runs something, they don't do a very good job at it. so why run the internet? it seems to be working ok now. >> i guess that there are elements in the state department that are trying to do a favor to their colleagues in china and russia saying, yeah, we'll put this on the table and see where it goes. it should go down the black hole and stay there. >> all right, judge. judge andrew napolitano, fox news senior judicial analyst. >> former radio partner. >> that's absolutely true. >> and your former personal assistant. >> whoa! >> but chose you in a business there's upward mobility. >> you started in the -- get into law. and then you have a chance to excel. >> all because he's half italian. >> unbelievable. >> so the judge will be arming drones later for his people. that's a whole another conversation. >> that is another story. >> all right, judge, thank you very much. >> pleasure.

>> investigators in the new york city etan patz murder case have a tough challenge ahead now that the suspect, pedro hernandez has confessed to strangling the little boy more than 30 years ago at a bodega in lower new york city and disposing of the body, police are now, perhaps, going to
3:53am
search landfills for the remains but is it possible to find and i.d. those remains 30 years later? dr. michael baden is a forensic pathologist and was new york city's medical examiner at the time etan went missing. good morning to you. >> good morning, steve. >> ok, what are they going to do? >> if they find the remains after 33 years, they can identify it because d.n.a. lasts for decades and decades. however, finding the remains is a real problem if he's telling the truth. most confessions and prominent deaths turn out to be false. and as many of them have been in the past on etan patz and also, i remember i was chief medical examiner, we were -- every day, we looked through all the cases reported in the five burroughs to make sure there wasn't an unidentified child. we spoke to the jersey investigators. we spoke to hospitals.
3:54am
if -- immediately that was done. >> if a sanitation worker picked up a bag with a body in it, it feels like a bag with a body in it. they'd open it up. >> i know there were stories in the new york city area in the last couple of days about how, ok, they know the day when this guy says he dumped the body. so apparently they've been keeping records for years and years about where the garbage trucks took the garbage. it would either be at the fresh kills landfill on staten island or the closed brooklyn landfill as well. so they have a general idea. they might -- so theoretically, they could start going through every bag in a block theoretically, they could find it. >> if they get -- able to identify exactly where it is, theoretically, they can do that but also, they incinerated some bodies in those days. >> some bags. >> excuse me, the garbage. they incinerated garbage, some garbage went into the ocean and all.
3:55am
it's -- and this is all speculation, but let me tell you, in a landfill, that's a tough job and it would take many bulldozers, many weeks or months to go through the debris even in the small area. >> so i know they're trying to find some closure. and it would be great to look through all those bags but that would cost a lot of money as the city is willing to spend that? >> a lot of money, time and personnel. a lot of it because we don't know what information the manhattan district attorney's office has. they've got to have more information than just a repeated confession by a person with mental problems. >> see? i'm picking uppish -- that you don't necessarily trust this guy. >> i think it has to be corroborated in some way because so far, all the people who have confessed to etan patz, who have confessed to jonbenet ramsey, dozens of people have not been
3:56am
telling the truth. they've not been the real murderers so -- >> right now, it looks like he's probably going to -- he's been charged with it, he's going to go to trial and they could convict him. >> we don't know if he's going to go to trial yet. he's being evaluated mentally and they need more than just a confession. >> all right. dr. michael baden, always a pleasure. thank you very much. >> thank you, steve. >> all right, it's 4 minutes before the top of the hour. he's a war hero. why in the world would anybody think it's ok to heckle john mccain on memorial day of all days? >> have a relative of -- wait until you hear how the senator responded. we've got that. and really fired up the crowd. and maybe he just needed to cool off or just wanted to take in the view. this bear caught swimming in a pool. and how they got him out.

>> mood news? >> if you want to get rid of the bug, we have too shut the lights off in the whole building. >> i think she'll be ok during this newscast. >> i think i can handle it. thank you very much. president obama and mitt romney commemorating memorial day on opposite coasts yesterday. they tried to lay claim to a constituency, excuse me, that has emerged as a battleground in the presidential campaign and kelly wright is following the story about the veterans live in washington. hello, kel. >> good morning, jules. good to see you as well as brian and steve. president obama and former governor mitt romney are two men locked in a race to win the white house. two very different men with two very different views of what america needs in moving forward as a great nation on memorial day, both men shared their views on america's military and the sacrifices men and women make in defending this nation. romney broadening his comments, discussing global threats to american security saying he has the better choice for america's military. >> we have two courses we can
4:03am
follow, one is to follow on the pathway of europe, to shrink our military smaller and smaller to pay for our social needs. the other is to commit to preserve america as the best military in the world second to none with no comparable power anywhere in the world. we choose that course. >> let's resolve that in our democracy, we can debate and disagree, even in a time of war. but let us never use patriotism as a political sword. patriots can support a war. patriots can oppose a war and whatever our view, let us always stand united in support of our troops who we've placed in harm's way. >> governor romney and the president are competing for the military vote. both acknowledge the 50th anniversary commemorating the start of the vietnam war. romney with senator john mccain, a p.o.w. war hero of vietnam at his side and president obama paying tribute at the vietnam
4:04am
war memorial. >> often blamed for a war that you didn't start and you should have been commended to serving your country with valor. you came home and sometimes were denigrated and you should have been celebrated. it was a national shame. a disgrace. it should never have happened. that's why here today, we resolve that it will not happen again. >> the president also told troops that americans must strive to be worthy of their service. meantime, the latest gallup poll shows u.s. veterans support governor mitt romney over president obama. some 58% to 34% and that makes up about 13% of the population. those veterans being mostly older men. nonvets on the other hand give the president a four percentage point edge. juliet? >> thanks very much for that.
4:05am
and you know, there may be some that would question the appropriateness of the president making those comments but i think it was entirely appropriate and i don't question his motives for saying that. i think it's something that should have been said a long time ago. >> it could also be a tactic. could be a tactic to say that we're tired of the democratic party being the party that's looked as anti-military even though it was the republicans with this whole debt ceiling debate who stood by the military and now face huge military cuts because they're soon to be in the republicans' corner but the charles krauthammer listened to those comments and had a very interesting take on what that could mean politically. >> helps to explain the huge gap between the republicans, whether it's a romney or a mccain in getting support from the veterans. it isn't only demographics, it's history. and the fact that is in the vietnam era, the democrats were the anti-war party and we heard obama today essentially doing penance for a country that spat
4:06am
on soldiers who returned from the vietnam war and what he didn't say is that in large part, that was the work of the american left. it wasn't the work of the american right who supported the war so in some ways, he's trying to undo this legacy of 50 years. but that's why for the 50 years democrats were always seen as a weak and anti-war party, weak on national defense. but it isn't only that. it isn't only history. it continues. >> i don't think the president had to say that, not that charles krauthammer was saying this but he didn't have to say it was the work of the left. that was pretty apparent to anybody who follows history. >> sure, the president was right, you know, when a lot of the guys came back from vietnam, you know, they did not get the parade and he -- >> no, they were spat on. >> absolutely. and when the president says it was a national shame, you came home and sometimes were denigrated, absolutely true and that's why so many people have tried so hard to make sure this time when people come back from afghanistan and iraq, they get the proper welcome. >> it was a democratic president during that time. j.f.k., l.b.j. and then richard nixon that got everybody out.
4:07am
>> i was going through the san francisco airport and there was a guy that just had -- i guess he had just gotten back from war and people were clapping and standing up. it was really -- i mean, obviously a totally different scene than it was in the 1970's when they were getting home. >> right. my wife and daughter flew back from dallas on southwest airlines two weeks ago, and as they landed at newark, the flight attendant came on the speaker and said, listen, ladies and gentlemen, so and so is returning from afghanistan. if you would stay in your seats and allow him first off the airplane? absolutely, they did. and as he got off, they gave him a standing ovation. >> nobody budged. everybody wanted to give that man his due which is great. >> yep. >> meanwhile, somebody who got his due when he returned from vietnam was john mccain. he got a handshake from the president of the united states. he is a true american hero when it comes to the vietnam war. interestingly enough, yesterday, he was appearing with mitt romney. we saw mitt romney a moment ago. he was there at the veterans
4:08am
museum and memorial center in san diego. 5,000 people in attendance. he made some comments. he was heckled. here's what happened. >> families in every place in america have a relative of -- >> sit down! sit down! >> boo! [applause] >> jerk. >> there's a creep in every crowd, isn't there, brian? >> and the crowd went wild.
4:09am
>> and he has used that on us. >> right. but he was doing it kiddingly. i don't think he was kidding there. >> i like the people in the audience. take him down! don't mess around anymore. especially don't -- maybe at college campus you can see that happening but, you know, when you're trying to cut john mccain talking to 5,000, a significant number of them were veterans, not the best audience. >> that guy was escorted out. >> yeah, we saw that. all right. now, the rest of the headlines. >> all right, we'll start with the fox news alert. more tremors reportedly shaking up northern italy after a deadly earthquake kills at least 10 people. the 5.8 magnitude quake struck near the city of modena. courtney walsh is in rome and has the latest joining us by phone. bring us up to date. >> today's earthquake struck right after 9:00 and many people who evacuated after the previous earthquake were staying in tent cities ran out terrified. just five days ago, a quake struck this very area killing seven. unfortunately, the death toll
4:10am
keeps rising and it's 10 at the moment. workers in this industrial city have recently returned to their jobs in warehouses. in fact near modena, about a town of about 170,000 north of bologna and we've learned of one worker at a cheese factory that died and a mayor says more bodies under the rubble, several buildings and a priest was reportedly killed by a falling beam in his church. workers are rummaging through the collapsed buildings in search of the injured and missing. the prime minister has pledged his help to the region. when he visited the area after the last quake, he was heckled by some of the crowd and criticized for not doing enough for the stricken area. there's reports of new tremors a few minutes ago. italian geologists say the aftershocks will continue but hopefully not as strong as the ones that hit today. guys? >> courtney walsh, thank you for the report. if you've been in an earthquake, you wait for those tremors to happen. it's so disturbing and so stressful. we'll give you another fox news alert now. we're learning a u.s.-led nato coalition has killed al-qaida's

who believe that in the face of great odds, we can make a difference in the life of this country. don't let them tell you different. >> from hope and change in 2008 to fear and blame in 2012. president obama insists his re-election campaign is still about hope and change but even the mainstream media now seems not to be buying it. listen to the question bob schieffer threw at robert gibbs this weekend. >> one of the refreshing changes when the president was elected, he talked about hope and change. whatever happened to hope and change? now it seems he's coming right out of the box with these old-fashioned negative ads. >> well, tim broskus is a professor of political science and economics at ucla and the author of "left turn, a liberal media bias distorts the american mind" and he joins us from l.a. where he is officially the first
4:18am
person up. good morning to you, tim. >> that's right. thank you, steve. >> you know, in 2008, nobody in the mainstream media said hey, what -- where's the hope and change? you're going to follow through on that. and now they're saying what happened to the hope and change and the campaign for the president is a little surprised they're getting pushback from the mainstream media. >> that's right. as you mentioned, you saw that clip from bob schieffer, cbs news so it's not just talk radio and conservative media outlets. it's actually mainstream outlets. last week, he had something from "new york" magazine where the subtitle of the article was hey, this time it looks like the message is about fear, not hope and change. >> that's right. well, in this particular article that you're talking about was by john hileman and it says in part, if the obama 2012 strategy in this regard is all about the amplification of 2008, it will
4:19am
be a striking deviation. they'll pummel him for being a vulture capitalist at bain capital. they'll pound him for being a miserable failure for the governor of massachusetts and mash him for being a water carrier for paul ryan's fiscal program. it goes on and on. clearly what they're suggesting, tim, is it was hope and change last time. it is be afraid. be very afraid of mitt romney this time. >> and what's remarkable is that it's mainstream journalists noticing this. i think that some of the mainstream journalists even are becoming a little disenchanted with obama and they're saying look, 2008, we elected this grand statesman, but in 2012, he appears just to seem like an ordinary politician complete with all the negative ads. >> and i think you, tim, being a professor has come up with an ept analogy regarding dogs. >> that's true. you know, i think the difference is they're -- the obama campaign is not running a positive campaign.
4:20am
what's going on is partly just doesn't lend itself to a positive message. and what's going on is that i think that democrats have a different nature from 2008, before maybe they wanted to propose their own policies, now they enjoy criticizing republican policies more and so what happened is, for instance, 2008, they're quick to criticize george bush for guantanamo bay but once they get in office in 2009, they do nothing about guantanamo bay. i think the analogy is they're kind of like dogs barking at a bus. once the bus stops, they don't know what to do. and one hartford -->> auto dogs can't carry tokens and can't get on to the bus. thank you very much for your analysis joining us today from los angeles. >> thank you, steve. >> all right. what do you think about that? e-mail us, friends at foxnews.com. meanwhile, the labor department backing a new plan to give unemployment benefits to people who are starting their own

story? i know there are models in some states like oregon, for instance, that are successful? >> we don't know. we don't really know what the track record is. here's the story. the labor department backs this plan. the plan is that if you're unemployed, you can get an extra six months of benefits. all you got to do is say, i am starting a credible business. i am a proven good candidate to self-employment. in other words, you can say i'm going to start a hot dog stand around the corner, give me an extra six months. that's how this thing works. >> how do you feel about that because you're pro entrepreneur. you want people to go out and use their own volition. >> this is pure politics. this this is improved, you can see president obama get out on the campaign trail and say look at this program, it helps entrepreneurs and gets them some money, get the business started. i'm supporting job creation in small business. >> if you're advising mitt romney, what would you say to

we all got awards. >> i got biggest crybaby. and i was very disturbed at the whole thing. i knew at the time that they were all making fun of me and i was really -- i have been tormented and haunted by that, i swear to you all my life. that's why i turned out -- >> you were actually crying. >> yeah. all the -- the whole time. this girl wasn't doing her homework. >> can i share my story? this is just as true as yours. all right? second grade, i'm wondering why all the bad kids are getting all the attention. so i say listen, if you're good, how come you don't get any attention? thank you. >> it's brian as song. >> i'm in second grade. miss ditsian heard this. this is the woman who said, she always wanted to lose weight and i said you're not fat. you just have big hips which by the way, was not a great thing to say. i didn't know. >> unrelated. >> yes. so on friday, she came up to me and said i got something for you. >> ok. >> and i still have it. i had it in my office to this

4:46am
believe that this hadn't been happening years ago. this is pretty clever. >> this is disturbingly clever and diabolical as they would say on batman. what we're seeing is the i.r.s. catching millions of people doing it. and saying, you know, we're stopping about $6 or $7 billion a year in fraud but maybe $4 or $5 billion a year is getting through. people get your social security number. >> easy to get. >> your medical records in the mail and in different ways. and so they take it, and they file returns through turbotax and other things and in fact, they have these kind of fraudster turbotax parties and these folks have been found around computers teaching each other how to do this and how to get on the internet. very prevalent in south florida using social security numbers from puerto rico, folks from puerto rico don't have to file federal tax returns.
4:47am
and so millions of people have been affected by this in a very terrible way. >> so the return money is sent in, what, like a debit card? >> sometimes a debit card that's dashed in. sometimes checks. mail carriers, unfortunately, have been implicated in this over the last couple of years. >> right. >> and have been sent to jail as a result of it and so you need to know how to see that it's happening. and then what to do, you know, once you know. >> well, you know, it's funny because we have some -- >> let's talk about that. >> some tips. >> the first thing is don't give your social security number out unless necessary. i remember going to video stores and said put your social security number -- video? absolutely not. you really have to be careful about giving that out, just say no, why do you need that? ok. check your credit report really frequently. sign up for one of those services. i know they're expensive. but you will spend thousands of dollars trying to regain your identity. now, if you in fact become a
4:48am
victim, you got to reach out right away to two federal agencies. the federal trade commission. call them at 1-877-id-theft. then get to the i.r.s. because they're the people that sent the check to somebody else that you're supposed to be getting and call them. >> real quick, can you get your money back? >> you can get your money back. you have to file an affidavit. a legal affidavit with the i.r. s., you can't get your money back. you can get the money that's due back to you. but some of these folks are getting thousands and thousands of dollars more than you should be legitimately getting and have implications. it can ruin your credit score. a lot of big, big issues so really be vigilant. >> we are on the case, peter johnson jr. >> you and me. >> ok, cool. >> next, "fox & friends" is on a mission to help you get working again. cheryl casone is on deck. there she is. with the scoop on companies that are hiring right now and what they're actually looking for. and in this day in history in

should have been commended for serving your country with valor. you came home and sometimes were denigrated when you should have been celebrated. it was a national shame, a disgrace that should have never happened. that's why here today we resolve that it will not happen again. >> a lot of our returning vets during vietnam did not get the reception they should have and that's what the president was essentially saying will never happen again. >> well, it's a shame. i'll tell you one thing that's a shame, it's a shame when president obama speaks on memorial day, that so many of us look at what he says through kind of a political lens. his sentiment is right, his sentiment is correct so let's put that out there. they were treated very poorly. the problem, however, is that a lot of the people who propelled barack obama's political career,
5:08am
propelled him into the highest office in the land, were those people who kind of considered our returning veterans as war criminals. bill ayers, president obama held a fund raider at his house, an old friend of his. and bill ayers called john mccain a war criminal and others like him because they participated in a legal war rather than staying home in being conscientious objectors for going awol. all of those men, and i'm not saying president obama thinks that today, but a left wing strain of thought were complicity in the war crimes the left believes were carried out across the board in vietnam. for him to say that, it doesn't -- while the sentiment is correct, it tends to make me feel like he's saying it for political reasons. it's the first time he's ever said anything in those terms before. >> right. he was talking about vietnam, it's not going to be the same issue it was with the john kerry-president bush election
5:09am
obviously. >> exactly. >> and someone who served in vietnam, john mccain, he's making a speech on memorial day. very important with mitt romney, and then this happens. let's listen. >> families in every place in america have a relative -- [heckling in the background] [booing] [applause] >> jerk. [laughter] >> okay. what do you think? >> well, it's so great to
5:10am
dovetail these stories together. i'm sorry, i love it. you have mccain up there, right after the president says, well, it was a national shame that these men were returned to this denigrating comments and then you have one of the quintessential war heros, pow survivor being denigrated by a man. what do you think the odds are that heckler is a romney supporter? what do you think? what are the chances? come on. and this is where mccain is so great. whole crowd wants them say something but a lot of politicians and probably mitt romney is probably too gentile to say something back to a heckler like that but there's occasions like that you want someone like that put in his place. good for mccain. i thought it was great. >> he kind of took the chris christie role saying what romney isn't saying it. >> what is wrong with calling out behavior for what it is. maybe next time he will respect
5:11am
someone's right to speak out. >> the guy you are yelling at can't lift his arms up over his head because of how he served the country. >> who would you take in a fight, would you take mccain over the heckler? >> absolutely. >> and barney frank's comments, here's a portion of them. he gave the commencement address at the university of massachusetts dartmouth campus. >> you give one ever these, and i think you now have a hoodie you can wear and no one will shoot at you. so i hope you feel pretty protected by that. >> hubie is huber jones, an african-american activist that got a degree, and he turned it into a trayvon martin thing. >> this is begging bill o'reilly to have him back again for another confrontation. barney frank is known for these kinds of comments. i've tangled with him over the years. he's a colorful guy, a liberal guy, and basically says what he wants and usually gets away with
5:12am
it except when he's on with o'reilly. doesn't surprise me. if tell flat. when he said dartmouth i thought it was my all ma mader and i thought, gosh, now you have i have to write letters to the board of trustees but i'm glad it wasn't my alma mater. it was just a stupid comment but a classic warn any frank. >> no kidding. laura, it's always a pleasure. we know you will do your radio show 47 minutes from now. >> thanks, guys. >> thanks, laura. >> great to see you. >> all right. next former first daughter jenna bush hager is here. her dad prepares to return to the white house. what? when he will talk about that. great dress, by the way. >> and a bunch of pictures, too. >> and country music fans, he has the number one song in the country. hip -- kip moore performs. and you have to here the thought behind the song.

5:39am
capital was under the microscope. the president started this at himself. he said what he's done at bain capital was not about jobs, it was about cutting jobs. all the hits about what he was saying, he doesn't equip you having a bain capital director as a background. doesn't equip you to be president. and every angle. and two or three ads, some blatantly inaccurate. it brings the whole question of should you be attacking the bain capital years of mitt romney's background or is it ripe for the pick because he talks about it? >> michael beron, a great writer and reporter as well, he has a new column out and says he thinks it will backfire. my hunch is obama's attacks on bain will strike most affluent directors as off-putting and
5:40am
that romney's calm responses will strike them as re' sure. >> it has backfired. mainstream media goes after the president you know there is something going on there. bob was on face the nation and listen to what he had to say about the negative ads. >> one of the changes when the president was elected he talk about hope and change. what ever happened to hope and change? now it seems he's coming right out of the box with these old-fashioned negative ads. >> okay. so remember back in 2008 it was all about hope and change, but now since the president, as the mitt romney camp says, can't run on his record, instead, as tim says, a professor at ucla, said on this show earlier, it's not hope and change this time, it's be afraid, be very afraid of mitt romney. >> some of the mainstream journalists even are becoming us enchanted with obama. they say in 2008 we elected this
5:41am
grand statesman but in twelve he seems like an ordinary politician complete with all the ordinary ads. >> i don't know what you think, about you when i get e-mails from people and tweaks talked about negative ads, when you hear it, you see a negative ad, i sort of tune out. you sort of expect it from the other side. it doesn't really carry a lot of meaning or weight, brian. >> and so many people thought this was going to be a different kind of politician, a different kind of president. hope and change and now fast forward four years, how is that working out for you? as michelle malkin has said on this program. >> i think for people who are very busy in their lives and not obsessed with politics like us, you see a 15 second ad, and you have on television between shows, i think they are effective. it maybe makes you assist lou a little bit and think wow, is that true? i didn't know that. and then go to find out. i think they work. they may be distasteful but i

5:47am
protests and the demonstrations and the recalls and all those sorts of things. what we decided to do was look at the numbers. and what we found is that 14% of the workforce in wisconsin works for the government. and the other 86% works for in the private sector. so what we did is we contrasted the government class with the producer class. >> right. >> and, in fact, when you look, and you just gave the numbers where only 14% of the employees in wisconsin are government employees, but then when you look at the per hour, when you break it down, it is jaw-dropping. a first-year teacher compensation averages out to about $56 an hour. that's a first-year teacher. a tenth-year teacher, $66 per hour. a typical producer class, you know, everybody else, they average $18 an hour. >> that's right. so what we want to do is bring some per expectative and bring
5:48am
some reality to this situation. we use numbers from milwaukee public schools, which is the largest district in the state. and we showed that when you break it down per contracted hour, because many teacher contracts stipulate how many days and how many hours per day that teachers are required to work. and what we've found for a first-year teacher, as you said, when you combine pay and benefits, it's $56 per hour that the school district is spending. then you contrast that with the private sector, the average compensation per worker in that state is $37,000, which equals about $18 per hour. so there's a huge disparity and that's what we tried to show in this animation. >> maybe that is why scott walker continues to win the recall election. why the money has poured in and when it's all said and done, the squeaky wheel got the cameras,
5:49am
but they don't have the numbers. >> that's exactly right. it does appear he is doing pretty well. the whole collective bargaining rights issue is not playing because people aren't buying it. in fact, that's why you've got the democrats and the unions not even using that issue. they are bringing up other issues. because the public is tuning in to the fact that they are not on the union side. >> if people would like to see the video, go to our website later today, thanks for joining us from michigan. >> thank you. >> kyle olson. nice job. meanwhile he has the number one job in country music. right now kip moore performs his hit, "somthin' about a truck" on our plaza. yeah, we are bragging. >> i'm stick around for that. coming up, mitt romney talks tough on syria and talks about the campaign with bill. and what if you could save big on healthcare by paying in cash? the amazing truth about this. stick around. bill and i will see you here at
